    Angelo Que richer by P8.3 million after Top 10 finish in US PGA Tour stop in KL

    Nov 2, 2014

    THE Philippines' Angelo Que closed with a two-under-par 70 to finish in joint eighth place in the CIMB Classic won by American Ryan Moore on Sunday, a performance that earned him US$189,000 (around P8.3 million) in the event co-sanctioned by the US PGA Tour and Asian Tour.

    The 35-year-old Que went four days at the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club at 10-under 278 to finish in the company of PGA Tour regulars Davis Love III and Rory Sabatini, two-day leader Billy Hurley and fellow Asian Tour regular Prom Meesawat of Thailand - seven shots behind Moore.

    Moore retained the title by firing a 67 featuring eight birdies and three bogeys for a 17-under 271 total and a three-stroke win over fellow Americans Gary Woodland and Kevin Na and Spain’s Sergio Garcia in the US$7 million tournament.

    Que, a three-time winner on the Asian Tour, momentarily fell out of the Top 10 after missing the fairway and making bogey on the 16th hole. But he fought right back with a birdie on the next hole for his second Top 10 finish in a major tournament in three weeks.

    The former Philippine Open champion placed second in the European Tour-sanctioned Hong Kong Open, losing in a playoff to Scott Hend.

    Que, one of 10 players from the Asian Tour who earned a place in the co-sanctioned event, had earlier rounds of 67-72-69. The big performance enabled him to move up to No. 5 in the Asian Tour Order of Merit with winnings of US$379,885 (P16.7 million) in 13 events.

    Woodland also had a 67, while overnight joint leader Na closed with a 70 and Garcia fired a final-round 69.
